City on Glendon:

Son of former City midfielder Kevin Glendon, George has already achieved a lot since joining the Academy. With his lineage, it’s little surprise that this talented youngster is a devoted City fan and seasoncard holder.

A diminutive, deceptively strong midfielder, capable of weighing in with vital goals, Glendon has enjoyed a taste of continental football in the EDS team for the NextGen Series over the last couple of seasons.

The tireless Manchester-born player starred in City’s successful AIFJC2012 tournament triumph in Abu Dhabi, playing a key role in their final win over Inter Milan.

George attended Kingsway School in Cheadle and has represented England at under-17 level.

No-one made more appearances for the EDS than George's 35 in all competitions. 

He played just in front of the defence and caught the eye with his consistently excellent performances, especially City's run to the UEFA Youth League quarter finals.

After being handed the EDS captaincy at the start of the 2014/15 season, George earned reward for his good start to the campaign when he was named on the bench for the first-team for the first time for the UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich in November 2014.

What's in a Name: George Glendon
